The remains of a Golden Era

While most written records and entire edifices that testify to India's contribution to civilization have been obliterated over time, some of them from the close of the last millennium are an eloquent reminder of the vitality of a continuing civilization for at least 5000 years. The meeting of

different cultural traditions can be seen in the innumerable forts, palaces, monuments and tombs that dot the Indian landscape.

Science and Technology

Starting with the Indus Valley civilization around 2500 BC, India has been the site for significant historical and philosophical developments intermeshed with several facets of scientific and technological activities. The discovery of coins and concrete evidence of maritime trade indicate a definite level of excellence in the fields of mathematics, geometry and astronomy. India's mastery of the science of pure mathematics goes back to ancient times.

Since 1947, with the metamorphosis of the country, as a new politically independent nation, India continues to pursue a program of employing modern science and technology for national development.

The Dances of India

The fascination for Indian dance all over the world is indicative of the deep-felt need to use the human body to express and celebrate the great universal truths. Indian dance does just that in a heightened, reverential form.

India offers a number of classical dance forms, each of which can be traced to different parts of the country. Each form represents the culture and ethos of a particular region or a group of people. Apart from the classical dances, India is particularly rich in folk idioms. Each area has its own special varieties, be they martial, seasonal, ritual, sacrificial, celebratory, instructional or talismanic. It can vary from village to village, but they all share a common heritage of myths and symbols.

The Religion in India

In India, religion is a way of life. It is an integral part of the entire Indian tradition. For the majority of Indians, religion permeates every aspect of life, from common-place daily chores to education and politics. Secular India is home to Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and other innumerable religious traditions.

Common practices have crept into most religious faiths in India and many of the festivals that mark each year with music, dance and feasting are shared by all communities. Each has its own pilgrimage sites, heroes, legends and even culinary specialties, mingling in a unique diversity that is the very pulse of society.
